I have installed Moodle and have set up a learning module where I am trying to link to an external file. I am getting feedback that I do not have privileges to to this. Is this prohibited by InMotion or am I doing something wrong.

Hi billwilson,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. Can you reply with the exact error message Moodle is providing you? With this information we'll be able to troubleshoot this further for you. We do not prohibit external links whatsoever.

See if this link from the Moodle docs helps you:
<a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
